Thanks for the list of forthcoming attractions, Wolk. America's a Dredd story in exactly the same way Midnite Surfer's a Dredd story.

Wouldn't the Kenny Who? Book come just before/after America as it includes Beyond Our Kenny.

OK, so my prog reading ended just after The Pit (a tragedy to get through the Millar/Morrison era then stop there).

Looks like the most important options are The Hunting Party, Doomsday, Brothers of the Blood, Total War, Origins and Tour of Duty.  Is that about right?

That's definitely where you'd want to start, but Scorpion Dance features Beyond the Call of Duty, which continues where The Pit left off and features at least one absolutely essential plot development; Satan's Island is a major story with another major plot development; and Mandroid (at least the first part) isn't the kind of story anyone looking to understand the difference between the Megacity One where Boing! happened and the Megacity One where Day of Chaos happened should miss out on. Top art on all of the above too.

Sorry.

I'm having trouble remembering what The Hunting Party was all about, but IIRC it's a standalone and I wouldn't consider it to be a particularly important one, as regards continuity or major plot developments.

I'd say Brothers of the Blood is a must though, as it collects most of the Kraken/Rico/Dolman stories

The Hunting Party was like The Hotdog Run without the clever central conceit, and like The Cursed Earth without the big finish. It was mostly notable for the ascension of Henry Flint to superstardom.

I like The Hunting Party, though it isnt the greatest epic. it's much lighter in tone than its contemporary stories - feels like a throwback to an earlier period of Dredd.

It doesn't really add anything substantial to continuity, though the events of the story are referred to in The Scorpion Dance, and the Fog on the Eerie sequence foreshadows Origins to some extent.

I have a fondness for it, probably because of nostalgia.
